AC Milan’s whole approach on the mercato has changed since Geoffrey Moncada, along with Giorgio Furlani, took over the operation. One of their targets, a journalist claims, is a 21-year-old Nigerian forward.
According to the journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Milan’s scouting department have identified Chukwubuikem Ikwuemesi as a ‘hidden gem’ and the Rossoneri would like to anticipate the competition. As such, they could make a move soon.

Ikwuemesi is 21 years old and plays for the Slovenian side NK Celje. This past season, he scored nine goals and assisted an additional five. At 195 centimetres tall, he could be an interesting one and it remains to be seen if Milan will make a move.
It would certainly be a signing with Moncada written all over it, as the Chief Scout has always been known for finding more or less unknown players. In the meantime, Milan are also awaiting the response from Marcus Thuram who is the priority for the attack.
